Good afternoon everyone,
As we settle in to our new roles and lifestyle in this global situation, it is important to take stock of what you have that is good in your life daily and work on your perspective. Counting your blessings and being grateful is one great way to lift your mood, gain some perspective and affirm your self in these crazy times. Being aware of what you are able to control and what you aren't is a good starting point to taking small steps to manage a seemingly insurmountable situation.
Another good thing to always remember is that although you are but one person... you are in control of what you can do. You are the captain of your own ship and although you may know some things are beyond your control, you have the knowledge to take actions and to make life better for yourself and others around you while not being hung up on that which is out of your hands. These little actions can cascade to create a feeling of more stability and positivity. Being self-aware and thoughtful of perspective is so important to maintaining your mental and physical health through these uncertain times.
Carol shared this quote with me to post here as it sums up these thoughts quite nicely.
We hope this finds you in good spirit, healthy and safe.
All the best,
